Beginning Watercolor

Beginning Watercolor


We start with the basics: brush control, water to pigment ratios, washes, mixing color, glazes, lifting out and texture techniques-often focusing on one or several techniques to complete several exercises and also a small painting. New projects each week, slowly building on previous lessons experience. Line drawings (for tracing) are offered for those who feel uncomfortable with free hand drawing.
